I consider myself something of a pizza enthusiast – as such, I’ve seen my fair share of pizza ovens. Believe me when I say that the Alfa Forno Allegro Outdoor Pizza Oven by Alfa Ovens is at the top of its class. It has a massive cooking space, is easy to move, heats quickly, and holds heat better than most conventional ovens.

Made in Italy by master craftsmen, the Alfa Forno Allegro will cost you a pretty penny, but it will also make the best pizzas you’ve ever tasted.

 

Who is This Pizza Oven For?

Considering the make and cost, this oven is best suited for the serious pizza chef who does a fair amount of large-scale outdoor cooking and entertaining. This is the type of oven used by a chef perfecting their craft, and really isn’t worth the investment if you don’t use it regularly.

 

Specifications

  • Weight: The Allegro is a good-sized oven, weighing 220kg when the base is included. Unlike other outdoor ovens, it comes with its own metal base that includes wheels.
  • Dimensions: It is 225 cm from the top of the chimney to the bottom of the base. The oven itself is 102 cm deep, 70 cm tall, 118 cm wide, and has a 100 cm x 70 cm cooking area. It is large enough to fit 5-6 pizzas at a time and can make 18 pizzas in less than 20 minutes.
  • Indoor vs Outdoor Use: This is decidedly an outdoor pizza oven. Its large size and tall chimney shaft make it ill equipped for use indoors, but a fantastic centrepiece for your patio or garden.
  • Colour Options: The Allegro comes in two colour options, yellow and red. Both look great and would be a pleasing addition to any garden. The body of the oven itself is the only part that is coloured, while the rest of the apparatus is stainless steel.
  • Fuel Source: This is strictly a wood-burning oven that requires minimal fuel, thanks to its high-quality craftsmanship.

 

Where Can I Use This Oven?

As with most pizza ovens, this should be used outdoors. It’s not hard to move – unlike other outdoor pizza ovens, the base has built-in wheels that make it easy to roll across flat surfaces. It’s very easy to store away when not in use.

 

What Makes This Oven Special?

One of the best things about this oven is how quickly it heats, and how well it holds the heat in. Refractory floor tiles and layers of ceramic fibre insulation in the oven allow it to heat quickly (it can reach 350°C in just 10 minutes!) and it keeps the heat well with minimal wood consumption. Its cooking area is also one of the largest on the market and can cook multiple large pizzas all the way through in as little as 3 minutes.

The Allegro also features a food-warming tray underneath the combustion chamber that you can use to keep the rest of your pizza warm while you eat your first slice. It has a nice sleek, modern appearance that makes it a great patio centrepiece.

 

Why Should I Buy This Oven?

If you’re looking for the best of the best, look no further than the Alfa Forno Allegro Outdoor Pizza Oven. I give this oven a 9/10, with the only downsides being its price and limited colour choices – although both models look very attractive. This oven is ideal for people who do a lot of outdoor cooking and entertaining – it’s a big investment, so you want to be able to use it to its fullest capacity.

The Allegro heats quickly and is large enough to handle 5-6 pizzas at once. It makes a perfectly crunchy, slightly smoky crust every single time, and can churn out 18 pizzas in less than 20 minutes.

 

How Can I Buy This Oven?

The Alfa Forno Allegro Outdoor Pizza Oven can be purchased on Amazon for just over £3,000. If you’re ready to take the leap, it will easily be the most delicious investment you’ve ever made.
